Pihlajanmäki shopping mall housing

A preliminary study to serve as basis for a new town plan. To task was to find a suitable way of adding housing to the site of the existing Pihlajamäki shopping mall in Helsinki. The west side of the mall and a large number of the surrounding houses are protected with the Building Protection Act and are part of the Docomomo Modern Architecture concervation list: http://www.docomomo-fi.com/

Office

Our work includes developing, studying and producing architectural projects that answer the client’s needs in a unique, cost-efficient, rational and aesthetically pleasing synthesis.

The design process consists of analysing the special features of each site and program. Our Architecture grows from hard work and a high level of commitment. We believe that the only way to build sustainable cities and buildings is to use real solid materials, solve all the functions in a flawless way and give every space and building its own unique appearance – a soul.
